Subject: One of my Faves!!
Minglewood went on FOREVER w/ Bobby forcing himself to learn the slide just measure after measure in front of us all with Jerry just laying back there helping him learn.
Cassidy was damn near perfect. The space was outrageous.
When the boys nailed that a-cappella part in China Doll you could hear a pin drop.
The best part is I can hear myself laughing on one of the aud tapes during the intro to TLEO. I was a newbie and got a lot of guff from the veteran tapers to whom I was standing too close for my natural volume level.
What a show!!!
Subject: Pretty sure I know the source
Subject: "." Nonintuitive
Subject: Decent show, Decent AUD
Bad: First set is dull and no rendition really stands out. (This is important when you have listened to 100+ shows...) Scarlet>Fire is also very average which shouldn't happen considering there is a lot of room for variation in that combo.
Ugly: Way too much Brent in this mix.

Then there's the Playin'. I am partial to 83 and 84 Playin's because I felt some of them got really "out there". 4/21/84 is one of those Playin's and so is this one. I love this version and I love the transition into the China Doll. Jerry's voice isn't 100%, that's for sure, but it's my opinion that his vocals on this night weren't that bad. I've heard "Froggy Jerry" plenty of times... my ears don't qualify this as a Froggy Jerry performance (you ears may differ). The Space jam is pretty focused and is more a jam than a collection of loud noises. Throwing Stones is a spirited version and after all the NFA's I've gotten after TS, I love the GDTRFB into Saturday Night. Day Job is Day Job. 20 years later, I still don't miss Day Job and I still have no desire to ever hear it again.
I had a great copy of this show on cassette for years. A few years ago, a buddy gave me a decent recording on CD. This version will replace my current version. I've always thought NAK 300s did a decent job, and this recording is a pretty good example. THANK YOU Archive.org and thanks to the folks who seeded this show. If Archive.org had been around in 85, 86, 87, I would never have gradjooatid from collij.
